6 actions to remember to tap into your FULL POTENTIAL

Before we start, think back to your teen years and early twenties about what you wanted to achieve. Have you achieved any of these dreams? Sadly, this answer to is likely to be ‘no’ because we find it all too easy to settle and think small. However, you are going to learn some tips today that will flip this around so you start thinking big and realizing you’re potential.

 

Be Brave – When we were children, we used to fill our lives with imaginative stories but where did this go? Somewhere along the way, we lost this ability because we choose to ignore it. Instead, let out your inner creativity and it might just lead you down a new exciting path.

 

Consider the Alternative – How do you think you will feel in ten year’s time if you’re still doing the same thing because you didn’t think big? If you feel happy with that thought, you may have achieved your dreams. If not, it is time to use this as your motivation. As the saying goes, we regret the actions we didn’t take as opposed to the ones we did.

 

Your Idea is Viable – With recent advancements in technology, your dream is closer than it has ever been before. Granted, even 30 years ago your idea may have struggled but with infinite resources, you can make it happen. There is no better place to start than today so why not do a little research and get the ball rolling?

 

Take Risks – Our comfort zone is great because it is the place we find life easy but this doesn’t lead to progression. If you want to achieve your dreams, you have to get used to stepping out of your comfort zone. As long as you are motivated and believe in your ability, you have the tools to succeed.

 

Think Big – Instead of thinking of good ideas every now and then, get into the habit of thinking up big ideas every single day. Even if you just spend a few minutes at a desk thinking up ideas, you will see progress. Once you decide on a plan, spend those few minutes elaborating and improving. Just a few minutes a day is better than nothing at all.

 

Listen to Emotions – As we grow older, we listen to our emotions less and less while preferring to look at the negative side of things. As a result, you have to get used to listening to your emotions once more so when you get a positive feeling; you act on it. It is all too easy to become robotic but deciding to be different and go through with ideas that truly excite you.

 

If you follow these six simple tips, the difference can be quite amazing. Life is a journey that has to be planned by ourselves and if we don’t, we settle for something we have never wanted. Why not be in the unique few who follow through with their dreams and live happily?

Trusting the Process

‘It’s ok to not have the answer yet, continue your journey and trust the process’

 

This is a quote that should be said and listened to far more often than it is nowadays; we all want to find success whether it is in our personal lives, in our career, in a sports team, in absolutely anything and everything that we do. However, no matter how close we get, we tend to make the mistake of choosing the quickest journey to get there.

 

Sport is a fantastic place to witness this because it is experienced every single year all around the world; for example, basketball teams that go 3-1 up in the play-offs. For some reason, once they go one game away from winning the series, they start to play differently because they are looking for the quickest route of success. This was seen just recently as the Warriors came from 3-1 down to win the series 4-3 and go through to the finals. How did they do this? They trusted their ability, they trusted their preparation and they trusted the process.

 

WARRIORS-iwontlose-process

This should be taken advantage of every single day and used to get exactly what you want in your personal life as well as your career. If you have a goal for your career and you get close, don’t suddenly chase the quickest route of reaching your goal, trust the process and continue with what you have been doing. This process is clearly working so why would you risk changing it? Ultimately, it may take a bit longer but as long as you have the faith, it will happen.

 

Life is tough; there is always going to be somebody waiting around the corner ready to trip you up, there is always going to be a pitfall for you to get hurt by. As long as you put your trust in the process, you will be staying safe from these setbacks. This does require a certain personality and it can be hard to get used to because from the outside, it may look as though you aren’t making any progress but you will know that you are doing the right thing. Others will get frustrated and will become impatient which simply leads to failure.

 

This isn’t just a method that ‘could work’ or that ‘has potential’, this is proven and can help in a number of different areas of your life. People use this every single day whether they are trying to maintain a personal relationship, climb the proverbial ladder in their career, or even trying to lose weight when on a diet.

As mentioned, this will not be easy. It may take daily reminders but in the long run, you can chase your dreams whilst believing in yourself, remaining focused and trusting the pr

5 Ways to Live to Your Fullest Potential

willpower

1. Embracing Your Imagination

In order to attain your goals you have to first imagine attaining it and living it. Living in wonder allows you to create a positive environment in your mindset where the thought of reaching your goals is possible. Embracing your imagination gives yourself permission to go out there to achieve your goals. Live your thoughts into existence!

 

2. Be Laser Focused

Being “laser” focused creates urgency within oneself to bring something into fruition, sooner, rather than later – and the idea of not doing it, or putting it off, becomes unthinkable. When something becomes such a huge part of you, it becomes very hard to detach from it because it literally gets ingrained in the networks in your brain. When you start to bring a dream alive, it becomes such a massive part of you that the fear of not making it happen grows and spreads, ramped around your mind quite effortlessly. The more you can intentionally create and be conscious of things that move you to action, the better equipped you’ll be to create the results you’re committed to.

 

3.) Stay Consistent

“Everyone claims they work hard but not everyone is consistent”.

Being consistent is all about sticking with a plan even though the results are not appearing immediately. Being consistent requires mental toughness and sometimes involves making sacrifices which  is never easy, but the more positively consistent you become, the easier sacrifices will get. The ones who never gave up are the ones who succeeded.

 

4.) Build Up Will Power

The idea of will power might be better understood by imaging a rainbow after a storm. Let’s face it, the majority of our experiences in life are not easy, especially when it comes to being successful. The struggles we are faced with during our ascend to the top can really test our determination. We may also be challenged by our own demons, which can include lack of focus or lack of long term thinking. You must earn your will power by having a strong sense of self discipline that can only get better over time. In this life, we are given the power of choice and the choices we make dictate our future, which is why will power is such an important trait to possess.

 

5.) Obtain Your Absolute Best in Health and Fitness

Your health is your #1 Investment and asset. Do your absolute best to ensure peak performance of your health, fitness, and wellness. You’re going to spend a whole lot of time in your body might as well make it a comfortable home. Here are some quick tips for optimal health performance:

– Exercise at least 5x/week for minimum 30mins.

– Eat a balanced diet that consist protein, fats, and minimal carbs.

– Aim for 7-9 hrs of sleep everyday

– Manage your stress levels by looking at the brighter side of any situation.

– Laugh as much as possible – everyday!

5 Traits of the Successful

5 Traits of the Successful

Hand finger

According to me, ADAMwontLOSE, I feel these are 5 key traits that lead to success. There might be many more other characteristics but I feel whether you are seeking business, academic, relationship, self-development success you will need the 5 following traits to succeed.

  1. Courageous

Courage, something all people must have. Courage is that ability to take leap of faith against your fears. It’s the ability to confront danger, pain and agony. This is an attribute that can be found in top performing athletes and many successful people. These people are motivated towards their goal in life and have no fear of loss. This courage makes a person want to live without having the concerns of falling back. Athletes can climb dangerous mountains, businessmen can can take risky investments all because they are courageous.

  1. Laser-focused

Having the knowledge of what your heart desires and then having the determination to reach that desire is called being laser focused about it. People with a strong heart and intellectual understanding of the world can have this vision. The people in the profession of sports or something that includes facing agonizing circumstances to reach that one required goal have this focus. You can see the laser-focusness in athletes when competiting at an exceptional high level. Being focused is just not enough you have to be LASER FOCUSED.

  1. Works hard

Hard work has always been the key to success. All athletes strive and work on their body as well as daily routine to reach an optimal lifestyle in accordance with their profession. Working hard is not an easy task and therefore can only be accomplished by the people who have a burning desire to succeed in their minds and hearts.

  1. Team player

No man is an island. You certainly need to have what I like to call ‘people-skills’ in order to get a head and achieve success. You’re day to day interactions with others determines your progress. You’re going to need to talk, collaborate, partner, and just talk to the right people in order to get to your destination. Do not waste anothter minute thinking you will make it all alone. Start being a team player – today!

  1. Problem solver

Ever encountered problems that you left hanging despite their answers present? This is not the habit of a motivated person! Every person who has the determination and motivation to live on to his dreams and grasp that once in a life time chance is a problem solver. Every athlete has the ability to solve his problems and lacking in the field to outrun the opponents.

Success Vs Achievement

Success Vs Achievement

-The Great Debate-

 

Success-Achievement

It’s fairly easy for people to confuse success and achievement, or rather to consider them to be the same thing. If you achieve something, you have succeeded; and if you feel successful it means you have a laundry list of things you’ve achieved or acquired to show for it. Right?

 

Wrong.

 

Achievement and success are two, entirely different things. In fact, in many instances, you could arguably have one without the other.

 

Tangible Versus Intangible

 

The first difference between achievement and success is the tangible versus the intangible.

 

When a person has an achievement, it’s something very tangible. It’s a thing they can point to and say “hey, look at what I did.” By contrast, success is more a state of mind. It’s intangible – more a thought or a feeling, of having done something worth while or with value.

 

This very philosophical difference between achievement and success can sometimes entangle people in misunderstanding for years; only to wake up one day and realize that the two are separate, and sometimes success has not truly been attained in spite of a laundry list of achievements.

 

What Versus Why

 

The next very real, and also philosophical, delineation between achievement and success is in the ‘what’ versus the ‘why.’

 

When someone wants to achieve something, it’s always a what. I want to achieve a nice car. I want to achieve a promotion at my job. They are always very specific, as we said tangible, things – making the motivation behind them still very material. ‘WHAT did you want?’ is the question asked after an achievement has been made.

 

But when someone is in it to succeed, it isn’t a matter of what they want, rather why they want it.

 

Why Getting the ‘What’ In Sight of the ‘Why’ Wins

 

To be clear: ‘why’ – or success – does not always win. There are people in this world who never truly know success, in spite of all the tangible achievements and wealth in the world. They may know it, they may not – but all the ‘what’s in the world mean nothing if there is no deeper reason for having done it all.

 

And vice versa: having this feeling of success, of knowing ‘why’ you work towards the goals you work towards means absolutely nothing if you cannot produce a single, tangible thing to show for it.

 

This is why getting the ‘what’ – the achievement – in sight of the ‘why’ – the success – wins. It’s that ability to achieve great things, while at the same time keeping focus on why you are doing any of it, that makes a person a great leader, and a well-rounded individual.

 

So while it may not be a true debate, or disagreement, between success and achievement (after all, how can it be a debate if you want the two to work together, in harmony?); it certainly is important to understand the distinction between the two for the sake of having a balanced philosophy of life and happiness.
